The Wellness Consortium

Kansas City’s Premier Network of Wellness Practitioners and Vendors

Welcome to Your Holistic Networking  & Business Support Group

Are you new/curious about why our community helps build your business or wellness practice? Or has it been a while since you reconnected with us? 

We are offering one FREE meeting in June to anyone interested in getting to know the Wellness Consortium OR to anyone who wants to learn how we’ve grown and what’s changed since the last time you attended a gathering!

This is an exciting time to be in the wellness space, so we want to bring our practitioners and vendors together to lift each other up and increase referrals.

To sign up for your one free meeting in June, please visit our event registration page, select your June event, and use the promo code WCJUNE22 during checkout.

Questions or need help registering? Send a note to wcsupport@smallchangesbigshifts.com – our team loves to help!


 

We are wellness practitioners and vendors in the Kansas City area, passionate about whole-person health. While growing our individual businesses is important, we also have a heart for making a difference in people’s lives. 

We believe all wellness practitioners and vendors – including you – has an important role to play in the well-being of our community. That’s why we come together to learn how each of our different services can better help people discover the best version of themselves. We use the framework called the Quadrants of Well-Being to keep the wellness language easy and consistent for our community.

Our group is diverse – made up of medical doctors, chiropractors, bodyworkers, acupuncturists, aromatherapists, personal chefs, counselors, physical therapists and trainers, yoga teachers, infrared sauna owners, local cafe owners, professional organizers, Feng Shui practitioners, business coaches, and many other different business support services including copywriting, image branding, website support, social media strategists, and brand messaging.

While we all come from many different walks of life and years served in our industries, we help people see that all it takes to get moving in the right direction is taking the next step in front of them.

Membership Benefits

Meet Your Community

Convenience is a deal-breaker for many people, which is why we established five small groups of wellness practitioners and vendors across the Kansas City area. With meetings in your neighborhood, this encourages our members to attend all meetings because of location convenience.

Each monthly gathering encourages you to connect, build, and support one another, whether that’s sharing advice, successful tools and resources, or most commonly, referring patients or clients to each other’s businesses.

Better Together

We understand feeling supported is a human need, especially as business owners. It’s one of the many reasons this group was founded. Our members have more than a vision – they know this is their life purpose, to better our community and the way we take care of ourselves and each other.

Our monthly meeting topics vary, but often include sharing how we’re handling today’s challenges, giving business tips, and many other memorable moments that ultimately build lifetime relationships with each other. These relationships are what build your spirit, mind, and body so you can continue giving to your business with a full cup.

Connect

Making a connection with others is a foundational need for success. This goes beyond just making friends or networking. We believe you need authentic relationships in your life, but it starts with connecting with other wellness practitioners and vendors by showing up at events.

Annual members enjoy unlimited monthly meetings in six locations:

  • North Kansas City
  • South Overland Park
  • Shawnee
  • Leawood
  • Lee’s Summit
  • Virtual

Amplify your connections at our two 90-minute City Wide events in January and July with special guest speakers and programs. All proceeds for these two events are donated to the Big Shifts Foundation.

Build

There’s a lot to focus on when it comes to building your business, and making room for educational opportunities can be difficult. This is why some meetings incorporate educational opportunities to help take your business to the next level.

Sharpen your skills through quarterly events that are centered around business development.

Boost referrals by highlighting what you do during our “Member Spotlight” each meeting.

Increase your business exposure by being active in our portal:

  • Customize your profile in the Member Directory
  • Post events under the Member Calendar
  • Elicit business with coupons and special promotions
  • Share press releases
  • Make use of the job board

Support

A support system is about more than just sharing the hard stuff. In fact, what we love most about it is celebrating each other’s successes. We were made to lift each other up, and not just cheer you on from the sidelines, but walk the path together.

Engage in forum conversations in our portal, share business offers for other members, find accountability partners, share resources, write each other reviews, and show up at each other’s events.

Our wellness practitioners and vendors rave this is one of the best communities they have ever belonged. Why? Each small group across the Kansas City area makes it a place that feels “soul to soul” rather than “role to role”. Wellness practitioners and vendors feel that sense of community during their gatherings, and it fuels each of them to continue growing personally and professionally.
